SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/29- “Delights And Desires!” (Psalms 37:4)
Premise Question: What does it mean to take delight in The LORD, and just how does one do it?
“Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.”
(Psalms 37:4 NLT)
Be filled with rapturous joy and gleeful delight, as you enter into, being fully engaged in, the presence of The LORD, and He, The LORD GOD Almighty Himself, shall lavishly endow and bestow upon you, by granting and fulfilling your deepest longings and cravings, that, with assured certitude, shall bring you great satisfaction, fulfillment, refreshing and utter enjoyment, with perfect peace, being established in the innermost and deepest part of your unique disposition and inclination, at the very center of who you are and were divinely created, with purpose, to become. (Psalm 37:4 PDCP) Blessings…
Bottom Line: The true and authentic understanding of what it means to take delight in The LORD and how one truly does it, starts with our heart and attitude towards Him—in giving Him the honor, respect and reverential awe that is due Him—in how we choose to celebrate and cherish Him and His matchless, being the most magnificent and splendidly glorious Name, which is above and beyond every other name known and unknown to humankind—in our gleeful rejoicing and in our abandoned joyful praise and worship offered to Him, as He is to reign supreme above everyone and everything else in our lives—in our devotion and service to Him, offering, submitting and yielding our time, treasure and talent unto Him for the accomplishment and fulfillment of His divine purpose and will for our lives, which will, as a direct result of our actions and attitude, be absolutely pleasing to Him, as well as greatly benefit us, in that He will grant us the true desires of our heart—and finally, a true and positive indication (sign) that proves that we are taking delight in The LORD is, by and through our adoration, admiration, appreciation and obedience to Him and His wonderfully perfect, life-giving Holy Word! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/01/15- “All Those Who Call Upon The Name Of The LORD, Are Near And Most Dear To Him!” (Psalms 145:18-19)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/01/15- “All Those Who Call Upon The Name Of The LORD, Are Near And Most Dear To Him!” (Psalms 145:18-19)
Premise Question: When one is close to being in panic mode, having a strong desire, with a huge sense of urgency, to be close to The LORD, attempting to seek, approach, or call upon The Name of The LORD, while in the midst of experiencing deep despair and distressing desperation, absolutely in dire straights of needing to be helped and rescued by Him; what kind of attitude and mind set will assure that one gets the attention and help that is so desperately required and needed, and that, in fact, can only come from Him?
“The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them.” (Psalms 145:18-19 NLT)
The LORD, whom is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, draws close by, coming alongside, right next to, all those who, with a sincere heart, filled with integrity and truth, will call upon The LORD; for all who do, are near and most dear to Him. He, The LORD, joyfully gives and satisfies every need, as well as, fulfilling the deepest desires, of all those who will give Him all the honor and the glory, all the praise and all the worship, in reverential awe, that’s due Him. The LORD Himself, inclines His ear, by intently leaning towards and listening to the desperate lamenting and most grievous cries for help, that come from the depths of all those who are suffering deep within their souls; saving and delivering them out of all of their sorrow and from their distressing desperation and disconsolate despair. (Psalm 145:18-19 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Any seeking, approaching or calling upon The Name of The LORD, for any reason, desperate need or not, must always be done with an authentically sincere heart, that’s full of integrity and truth and accompanied by humility and contriteness. One must exhibit a child-like believing faith, that simply trusts, with sure implicitly and an expectant and voracious hope, that is earnestly expressed and requested, as a prayer of importunity, unto The LORD. One must also be desperate for Him and His presence, by searching and seeking Him only, with their whole heart, mind, and strength; desiring to draw ever closer to Him, knowing that in so doing, He will reciprocate and draw ever closer to them, even coming along beside them, hearing their distressing desperation cries for help and seeing their disconsolate despair, and then, responding to them, each, according to their needs, and then, ultimately rescuing them from their disparaging and utterly hopeless plight! Put your faith and confidence, place your hope and trust, in The LORD; for He is always going to be close to those who call upon His Name! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/27/15- “Beyond Eager To Know And Obey Your Word!” (Psalms 119:36-37)
Premise Question: What activity, desire, goal or aim or relationship, in this life, that we could chase after, strive for or be involved in, would yield more, with the greatest and most advantageous benefits for living a flourishing, successful life, now and in the life to come, than being eager to know and obey Papa God’s Word?
Give me an eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money! Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word. (Psalms 119:36-37 NLT)
Grant me a voracious appetite, Papa God, that is far greater, in scope and magnitude, than for any other strong affectionate affinity, that I may be overwhelmed or consumed with, in this world, including money; that I may always desire to devour Your precepts, statues and commands! I ask You, Papa God, to give me the desire, fortitude and discernment, to always avert my attention, my gaze, focus and unhealthy infatuations, away from those things that are set before my eyes, in this life, that are despicable in Your eyes; things that are of no use, are devoid of any intrinsic value, being completely empty and futile, but, please do continue, Papa God, to grant me a life full of meaning and value, through Your vivacious life giving, satisfying and fulfilling, Word. (Psalms 119:36-37 PDCP)
Bottom Line: According to Papa God’s Word, nothing compares with eagerly desiring to know Him intimately and to fulfilling His will and purpose, for our lives, by obeying, adhering and following closely, His precepts, statues and commands found within His Holy Writ; for no life lived without His love, mercy and grace, His guidance and direction, His peace, joy and comfort, is a life lived to the maximum enjoyment, for this life and the life to come! Blessings…
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
(Psalm 37:4 NIV)
Be filled with rapturous joy and gleeful delight, as you enter into, being fully engaged in, the presence of The LORD, and He, The LORD God Almighty Himself, shall lavishly endow and bestow upon you, by fulfilling your deepest longings and cravings, that, with assured certitude, shall bring you great satisfaction and enjoyment, with perfect peace, to the innermost and deepest part of your unique disposition and inclination, at the very center of who you are and were created to be. (Psalm 37:4 PDCP) Blessings…
